iOS 5 Better Than Windows Phone 7 Mango at HTML 5 Rendering

When Microsoft introduced Windows Phone 7 Mango, the platform refresh that will hopefully bring the Redmond platform closer to its competitors Android and iOS, they emphasized on IE9 as one of the key features. HTML 5 with hardware acceleration will come to Windows Phones and compared to Android and iOS, it was hugely outperforming both.

It appears that, while Windows Phone 7 rendered HTML 5 at about 25 FPS — much better than iOS 4 — Apple’s new platform, iOS 5, even in beta, managed to render the same page with 31 FPS. Microsoft and Apple will definitely tweak HTML 5 browsing and rendering some more until both platform refreshes actually hit devices but it is interesting to see how far Apple managed to push its Safari (even in a Beta release).
